After our drive from Milan to Zurich we arrived at the Sorell Hotel and parked across the road in our reserved parking spot. The receptionist was most helpful, explaining the tram tickets which you can buy from the hotel and even put them on you bill. Our room was at the front of the hotel and I thought we would...

Excellent hotel, very comfortable bed, nice location and connection to the center/main station, nice view, good breakfast... It was also perfectly clean, and I had the surprise to find a small wooden balcony with table and chairs ! Also I could borrow an iron and ironing board, very convenient. The room feels completely both modern and comfortable. I would come...

It is close to the tram station, and it is convenient to go to Zuerich HB with your big bags. Hotel staffs are very helpful and made me very pleasant during the 5-day stay. Actually, on the final day, I had to check out at 6:00 a.m. to get early flight, which was the time out of service, but a...

We stayed here for 3 nights. (Room 310) It was ok for 3 people although our 3rd adult had to sleep on a sofa bed. We found the staff very helpful and always pleasant. It is in a good location with a tram stop very close. (Take tram 7 or 15 into Central) It is an easy walk downhill to...

The staff here was extremely helpful even changing some paper money for as many Swiss Coins as are made for this coin collector. Clean, nice room just up the road from the main shopping and sights along the river and lake. Not very much parking though.

The hotel ha an excellent location, practically downtown is in walking distance, streetcar stop is also nearby. Room is very neat and spacious, breakfast is substantial and good quality. They have a barking lot at the back of the hotel, so it is a big help for car travelers. We had no issues, staff was very friendly, gave us maps,...

We selected this hotel based on the reviews, but were rather disappointed. We had the smallest bathroom we ever experienced in a hotel - the washbasin is a laugh. With the windows closed, the room was reasonably quiet, but too hot and stuffy, no fresh air, and with the windows open, there was a hell of a noise from the...

Usually I stay in business hotels in Zurich, which are generally good but very expensive - but then I'm not paying. This time I had to cough up myself and wanted somewhere quietish but not miles away. Took a punt on this place and very pleased.
